Meet Dick, Ruby, Lucky, Joan, Mona Kent,
Hennessy, and the Captain as you join in the antics of a group of performers
staging a show, set on and around a battleship. Calamity strikes during
rehearsals when the theatre is demolished, and the show is eventually
mounted on the deck of a frigate after a young chorus girl steps in to
save the day. Sound familiar? This classic spoof on movie musicals of
the 1930s continues to delight audiences since it first made a star
of Bernadette Peters in the original production. Derek Franklin and Sonny
Borey bring it to you with their celebrated style and flair. Youll
end the season singing Good Times are Here to Stay!!!

If you thought you knew the story of
The Princess and The Pea, you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did
you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat
to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that, in fact, it wasnt
the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on
a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and
melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship
and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances
are, youll never look at fairy tales quite the same.
LE PETIT THEATRE DU VIEUX CARRE: Since 1800, when culture-steeped Creole
society, the New Orleans aristocracy, created and patronized Le Petit
Theatre du Vieux Carre, live theatre has flourished in the heart of
the French Quarter. Between acts, patrons still congregate in the courtyard
of the wrought-iron embellished villa adjacent to Jackson Square for cafe
au lait and conversation.
oldest continuous community theater in the United States, Le Petit
is THE venue in town for true community-theater buffs, along with tourists
taking in an old Southern experience. This is also one of the nicest theaters
in town - there's not a bad seat in the house and the stage is highly
visible no matter where you sit, especially the balcony.
Performing Arts have been alive and thriving here for a long time. Jenny
Lynn, a charismatic 1800's songstress who lived across the street in the
Pontalba Apartments, frequently performed here. In more recent times,
each Spring Le Petit hosts the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary
Festival, celebrating the legendary playwright who spent much time in
plays by some of the South's best playwrights
3 to May 30:
In the aftermath of a young man's sudden death, his girlfriend, mother
and twin brother must redefine their lives and relationships. Will an
eccentric cloning cult be the answer to their grief? Drawing on a variety
of sources ranging from the recent breakthroughs made by South Korean
scientists to the farfetched claims of human cloning made by the eccentric
science-sect known as the Raelians, CLONING JUDSON examines the human
side of this controversial new science.
nudity, sexual situations and coarse language
deals with serious themes in almost absurdist fashion. His dialogue plays
well, his themes of the doppelganger and the human need to fill the void
of loss resonating with feeling and wit."

Southern Rep history: Recognizing a need for professional theater in New
Orleans, in 1986 playwright Dr.
Rosary Hartel O'Neill, Dick O'Neill, Nancy Mendard and Clydia Davenport
founded Southern Repertory Theatre with the goal of creating a leading
center for Southern playwrights and plays.
Rep has graced a series of historic locations reflecting some of New Orleans'
distinctive ambience - first the Quadroon Ballroom of the Bourbon-Orleans
Hotel in the French Quarter, then the elegant Board of Trade building
in the Central Business District - but all shared the disadvantage that
everything had to be dismantled at the end of each season. A search was
initiated for a permanent facility that could be functional throughout
the year, culminating in 1991 in the present location of the theatre,
on the third floor of the Shops at Canal Place,two blocks from the river
on the French Quarter side of Canal Street.
to its original mandate, Southern Rep features southern writers and topics
and emphasizes educational outreach. In its 16 seasons, the company has
produced more than 50 plays by some of the country's leading Southern
playwrights, including Tennessee Williams, Horton Foote, Lillian Hellman,
Beth Henley, Carson McCullers, Loraine Hasberry, Pearl Cleage, Romulus
Linney and Margaret Edson.
